Major Meltdown

Waking up after a major emotional meltdown brought some interesting things to mind. I always look for signs, some call them synchronicities, I call them messages from the Universe to help me process and navigate through my emotions.

Mal from the movie "Inception" came to mind. I actually felt like her. She tried so hard to wake her beloved up from the illusion that he thought was reality. I felt her pain as he announced to her that he couldn't be with her because of all her complexities, her perfections and her imperfections, and that she just wasn'tgood enough for him anymore.

She tried desperately to show him that his world did not really exist, that it was an illusion, a delusion even, but he couldn't accept it and continued to prove to himself and fight off his own demons that were trying to keep him in and out of the delusional world he had created with his wife.

Somewhere/everywhere on this Prison Planet, we stumble, we fall, we falter, we make wrong decisions as we try to grapple with the so-called reality around us. The more we try the deeper we go and the more we realize that it is all an illusion, a game, a dream, a theater show written by Puppet Masters. We think we are playing authentic roles and being in "character" for real, when in fact we are just players on this stage.

It's a stage built by the protagonist and the antagonist whom we both are. That's what Mal was, she was his lover and his hater. In as much as she loved him, she attempted to destroy him "for his own good". She perished in her attempts and he went on to continue his dream, his illusion, fantasy. And in his "crazy"mind he felt like he really left her behind, only to wake up on the shore of his subconscious, lost and still dreaming.

This reality, or whatever we call it, is a dream, just a bit slowed down than the ones we experience when we are asleep. It comes equipped with all the illusionarytrappings we need to "create" the drama.

We work tirelessly in our creation of this "reality" we feel is so real and true, when in fact it is just an illusion.

The sad part of it is that we are hurt and we hurt as part of our own particular roles and perceptions of what is "real" and what is not. We feel secure in our perceptions, that we are "real" and any counter perspective is folly.

We hold on dearly to our illusions and will fight fiercely to maintain our illusion of what is real. We respond antagonistically towards anyone, friend, foe, family member, lover, anyone, who would dare to pull us into their illusion. We hold water in our hands and believe that we can do this even as it drips away from us. We impose our belief systems on the very ones we are supposed to love unconditionally and we destroy instead of build.

Yet, through it all, there is an Entity, or what have you behind the curtain. There is a bigger plan, a larger game and an even bigger illusion that is giving us plenty of props for our present illusion. We live in our rarified worlds, determining who is the enemy and who is not, who is friend and who is a counter-force to what we wish to believe. It is all an illusion, or better yet, let me call it a sub-illusion to the one just above it. The Entity behind the curtain is hidden, but it is quite effective in helping us fight for our illusions.

I woke up this morning, wondering, what does it really matter, there is no defense and no chance for change of perspective on this stage. And yet, the pain is very real, and it really, really hurts when your mistakes outweigh any benefits you may have brought to someone you love, thus, feeling like Mal. She really hurt Cobb in her attempt to get back to "ONE" which was not "Oneness" at all but an illusion of "ONE" they created together oblivious to the fact that they were being played, or that they were playing "roles" on this illusionary stage call life on this planet.

So I feel you Mal. It really hurts when the person you love looks at you with contempt for playing your role on the same illusionary stage they played theirs. It takes you to that suicidal point of insanity, where you want to make it all stop,,,,

How could you have been so mis-casted in your role. How could you possibly turn it around, dust off your values, impregnate your mind, regain your self respect, when you are still dancing, practicing, walking, talking,teaching, eating, gaining and losing on the Universal Illusion Stage?

"Synopsis: Although we have bandages for cuts, chicken soup for colds, and ice packs for bruises, most of us have no idea how to treat day-to-day emotional injuries such as failure, rejection, guilt, and loss. But these kinds of emotional injuries often get worse when left untreated and can significantly impact our quality of life and cause damage to our emotional wellbeing."

Yes, all things in existence are made up of energy (proven through quantum physics), and everything is a part of the one energy field.  There is only one energy  in existence – which everything is a part of.
Separation is an illusion experienced in this reality/vibrational field of duality, time & space.
This illusion has a divine purpose of allowing us to directly experience  the vibrations/experiences available in this vibrational field we call Earth. Read more here: Click here for entire article

FYI, Winter Solstice, Northern Hemisphere, Dec. 20-21, 2013


In 2013, winter begins with the solstice at 12:11 P.M. on December 21 (EST - check in you own area for a more exact estimation of the time)
The winter solstice for the Northern Hemisphere is fast approaching.  All too often this time of year has us externalizing, shopping, buying and getting deeper and deeper into the material world, when in fact, it is most appropriate to get into the spiritual world, or your spiritual work during these times. It's a shut down time as the light duration of the sun diminishes and we experience shorter day light hours.

The animals seem to be more in alignment with this period, particularly those that hibernate during the winter months. Unfortunately, we live in a world that is so industrialized that we cannot "REST" during this time but must continue to go and go and go, through it all. 

If we are really and truly wanting to quiet ourselves we have to make a HUGE effort to shut ourselves down. Particularly if you are Christian or surrounded by
Christians, and then on the other hand, let's keep religion out of it, let's just talk about the mind control and the push to consume, buy, consume, buy..... The pressure is at its peak during this time, and having Christmas & Kwanzaa and other "festivals" thrown into the ring, you will probably look not too far from crazy if you say, you cannot eat Christmas dinner, as you are fasting. It's definitely a battle for your spiritual well being, and to catapult you into a very depressed coming year with a calendar that is all off.

Historically, it seems to be a plan to homogenize the entire world onto a specific pathway, how more manageable they are if they are all doing the same thing? In fact, the winter does not bring snow everywhere, but it seems, that is what is imaged as the true winter scene. 

When we do things in the alignment with natural cycles we tend to be more successful. The resolutions made on New Year's Eve, Dec. 31, are going to be more difficult to keep due to the fact they are being made during a mis-alignment. Not to mention, they are made with the big distractions of a just past Christmas and a coming New Year's Eve Party!!! Resolutions will shortly be barely remembered if at all with all that going on. When a farmer is aware of the best times for planting seeds, that is when the seeds are planted. Because of the general wintry climate and the shortness of day light, it portents a time for introspection, quietude, meditation, fasting and contemplation. Take a look at what the past year has brought and make changes in these quiet moments, moments that will hold your resolutions in longevity.  It may also help to get assistance, i.e., through a psychic reading, focused meditation, visualizations, soul searching, etc.; to help determine what resolutions are most apt to move to successful achievement considering the energies of the coming cycle. Everything is energy.
 Nevertheless, if you persevere through the social opprobrium, you may find that you have moved a little bit further on your spiritual journey. 

I find it interesting that the same folks who speak of Awakening also Capitalize off all the Christmas rivalry that can happen during these times, it seems to be a huge chasm when it comes to Awakening and Commercialism. While I must admit that these folks are about selling, selling and selling whatever they are presenting in the form of the Way to Awakening, they do not appear to have the courage to tell folks to cease and desist being caught up in the Capitalist/Commercial bubble of Christmas. Maybe they are afraid they will lose followers, and if that's the case, are they really being sincere?? 
Knowing that many folks will still be doing what they are most familiar with, I have presented my thoughts. Below you will find some information on the Winter Solstice to help you understand better what it's all about. It is simply an FYI for any who may be interested.

In 2013, winter begins with the solstice at 12:11 P.M. on December 21 (EST - check in you own area for a more exact estimation of the time)

Ø      The winter solstice is fast approaching.  For those who are interested in learning more about the Winter Solstice and its implications, there are listed several links to give you some information about the ancient celebrations and its correlation to today and the so-called “Christmas Season.”  Please read these links and research your own and by all means feel free to share what you discover.

Ø      Fasting is extremely important around the Winter Solstice.  Be sure to take special time to observe the Solstice, Dec. 21, 2006....  Fasting, praying, meditating...   This is the time of year when you should be making your resolutions.  That is write them down, make plans on how you want to accomplish them.  Pick accomplishable resolutions!!!!  Make intentions and affirmations.  Write them down.  Be COOL.  Try not to get hyped..

Ø      Fast in whatever way works for you, three days before, on the 21st and three days after.  I suggest something simple like no salt, no sugar, no junk food, no fried foods and no meat.  If you can do this for seven days that will be challenging enough.  I do not suggest a juice or water fast, it is too cold, it is winter and we need caloric foods to keep us warm......  Burrrrr!!!

Ø      On Dec. 21, attempt to fast from any negative situations, shopping, and large crowds.  See who can fast from talking...  Try 12 hours.... no talking to nobody.  That means e-mailing as well...  Shut down communications.......  And if it goes sooo bad that no matter how hard you try, somebody, somewhere is trying to make you talk to them all day, Dec. 21, then when you go to bed, make the intention, that you will be quiet, at least in bed, while sleeping.  Try hard.......

Ø      After the fast, if you can keep those things out of your diet, good, if not, gradually introduce the things you took out, except, don't gradually introduce junk food, for crying out loud!!!

Ø      The Winter Solstice is known as the shortest date of the year, and it signifies the return of the sun. It is sometimes viewed as a time for rebirth, as we go from the darkest day of the year, and move into longer days. This can be a time to also look at what you want to create in the coming months, as well as clear out the old and release the past.

Ø      Let's dig deep into our souls and may everyone have a successful and blessed Winter Solstice...

Winter Solstice

The ancient peoples used this time of "longest night" to focus on the power of darkness. Not the negative image of darkness, but the richness of that unknown, dark, fertile, deep part in each of us wherein our intuitive, creative forces abide. In modern terms, it is a time for owning one¢s shadow, so as to transform any negative energy associated with it into the energy of creation and psychic ability. We must accept and know our Darkness before we can fully know our Light.

The Christ energy enters the Earth at this time in the yearly cycle, infusing our world with the ideal of perfection and the desire for a re-merging with the One. As the Essenes prepared for this infusion at the beginning of the Piscean Age, so do we prepare for this entry of Christ energy at this season. On the morning following the Solstice, the Yule log is lighted, signifying the return of the Sun (Son) after our long night of inner preparation.

We have arrived at the longest night, when the power of the Sun is at its lowest point. From this point of Solstice onward, the Sun will experience a "rebirth" .... Each day will see more and more sunlight from this Solstice until Summer Solstice, when solar influence will be at its peak.

The Great Invocation

From the point of light within the Mind of God
Let Light stream forth into our minds
Let LIGHT descend on Earth.

From the point of love within the Heart of God
Let Love stream forth into our hearts
May LOVE increase on Earth.

From the center where the Will of God is known
Let purpose guide our wills
The PURPOSE which the masters know and serve.

From the center which we call Humanity
Let the Plan of Love and Light work out
And may it seal the door
where evil dwells.

Let Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth.
Let Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth.
restore the Planet Earth!
